Hi, my name is Alex Cecilio, and I'm going to show you how to cut off elements hanging off of the art board in Illustrator. So here I've got my image and I decide that I want to trim this image so that as you can see these pieces are hanging over my art board. So, the first thing I'm going to do is I'm going to select just the rectangular tool, which is right next to the line tool and I'm going to draw a rectangle over the entire art board and then I'm going to select the selection tool and then I'm going to select everything and then I'm going to right click and say make clipping mask and there you go. My name is Alex, and this is how you trim things off of the art board in Illustrator. Thank you.
